Regulatory Compliance


Laboratory Health, Safety & Accreditations

At the early stages of your new laboratory project, we will carry out an assessment of your research area, regulatory compliance requirements, anticipated hazards, and appropriate mitigation methods, and build these into the laboratory design. Our Science & Technology team has years of hands-on laboratory experience with an IOSH (Institution of Occupational Safety and Health) accredited Certification in Laboratory Safety.

Whether you have your own laboratory compliance team or need help with legislations such as Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH), Advisory Commission for Dangerous Pathogens (ACDP) or Pressure Systems Regulations, we are supported by our specialist advisors.

A responsible approach

Health & Safety During Construction

A responsible approach to health, safety and welfare issues is key to ensuring that all activities under our control are carried out in accordance with health and safety procedures, and in regulatory compliance with statutory provisions.

Bulb employ a team of independent auditors that undertake safety audits on our sites and provide training to staff and site operatives. Any client has a regulatory responsibility under CDM (Construction Design & Management) regulations to appoint a specialist who is competent to comply with health and safety requirements. Most client duties require action well before work starts on site. As an accredited Safe Contractor, Bulb can aid clients in identifying hazards and creating a plan to organise and control health and safety matters throughout the construction and delivery of a project.
